That’s right. It rained. It poured. Baltimore completely missed the solar eclipse. My coworkers and I made a second attempt to see part of the eclipse by going to the ninth floor where it was at least dry and we could see some of the clouds parting.Homemade Viewer

Although I’m very disappointed to have missed my chance to see a solar eclipse, I’m glad we did try the ninth floor. There we saw a cute handmade projector and met a Ran-Der Hwang, a postdoctoral student in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, and his son spending the afternoon tracking the solar eclipse.

Jason tried to console me with a livestreamed view from Charlotte, NC.
